Rentokil PCI has launched “Mosquito Control Innovation”, a product-based solution, that aims to deal with the threat of mosquito-borne diseases which are on the rise in India.
Known as ‘Cold Fogging’, the innovative solution involves blasting the mixture of insecticide and water into very fine micron-sized droplets through a fogging (ULV) machine. It is an odourless solution that does not contaminate non-targeted areas, which makes it environment-friendly.
Much quieter than traditional thermal fogging services, it leaves a long-lasting residual effect as the fog particles remain active for up to 10-12 days, enabling more contact time with adult mosquitoes in the air.
The product-based innovation ‘Mosclean IG1’ is an eco-friendly mosquito trap that attracts mosquitoes using LED lights. The trap is scientifically proven to catch and kill mosquitoes particularly those transmitting the Zika virus. This solution offers coverage up to one acre, which is water resident and used outdoors.
The Mosclean IG1 is non-hazardous and works on a photocatalytic reaction that releases carbon dioxide, which is irresistible to mosquitoes and thus the capture and killing of mosquitoes by dehydration.
Rentokil PCI added that it will soon launch “PCI’s Anti-Mosquito Racquet”. The product will be the first mosquito product in the Rentokil PCI’s consumer product range under the PCI brand.
David Lewis, managing director of Rentokil PCI, said: “The onset of the monsoon season also signals the peak time for disease-causing insects such as houseflies, dung flies, and mosquitoes.
“These insects can spread a variety of life-threatening diseases through bites and by infecting food and surfaces. The Mosquito Control Innovation will help combat such challenges and offer a solution that ensures a safer, better, and more protected community.”
